What if Icelandic Horses Were in Cavalia

I always wanted to know how Icelandics could be incorporated into a large scale equestrian production like Cavalia.  Here is one possibility--put a herd of Icelandics in front of simulated volcanic activity and see what happens.  Unsurprisingly, most of the horses are so comfortable that they just roll in the lovely dirt in front of thousands of people and the video screen.  It takes an Icelandic sheepdog to move them around the stage.

I wonder how Iceland feels about the implication of riders drinking and riding?

Hi Pamela, well, interesting and fun to see how unconcerned the horses are with their dramatic backdrop but... well, the choreography is pretty bad and it doesn't say a lot about the breed so I don't think I need to worry about not seeing Cavalia!
